Can an apartment complex start charging for parking? 5 Answers as of December 13, 2013

When I signed my lease last April (1 year) I was given two free parking passes. Now the complex wants to start charging me, and limiting where the second car can park (far away). I need the second space to stay as it is. What can I do?

Read the lease. You may not have been guaranteed a free parking spot.

If the spaces were designated in the lease, you take the lease to them and tell them no. If it was only understood and not part of the lease agreement, start looking for a new apartment.
